Challenge #1 Shaped Card
I used the Unity KOM from October 2011, “Faith, Hope & Love”. The jar-shaped card is a jar shape cut from the Silhouette store, made into a card. I also used the Silhouette foil to make the rim to the jar.
Challenge #2 It’s All About Texture
For this card, I used Unity’s Brave Boots and the sentiment is from Unity’s KOM September 2011 “All Seasons”. For the texture I made a veil out of some fabric. I made this card for my daughter, who’s getting married in three weeks. She is wearing her cowboy boots under her dress and I wanted to make her a card for her shower using this stamp set!
Challenge #3 Embossing
This card was created using Unity’s November 2011 KOM “Take Your Time” for the snowflakes that are embossed with puffy embossing powder. The sentiment is from the “All Seasons” KOM. The background paper is embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder.
Challenge #4 Sketch
I used Unity’s September 2012 KOM “the Vintage Touch” for the key and the sentiment. The paper is MME Lost & Found.
Challenge #5 Fall
This card was made using Unity’s September 2011 KOM “All Seasons”. I tried to use a masking technique with shimmer mist. You cannot really see the shimmery texture that the mist makes in the picture, sorry!
Challenge #6 Stamp a Border
This challenge required making a border out of a non-border type stamp.
I used Unity’s “Giggle Grove” stamp set on this card. The “giggle” was the border I created. I bought this stamp set with my crafty friend, Stephanie, in mind. She adds “giggle” to her text sometimes and I just immediately thought of her when I saw this stamp set!
Challenge #7 Coloring
I used Unity’s November 2011 KOM “Take Your Time” for the cup of cocoa. I am not very advanced in my coloring, so I picked a pretty easy stamp to color. The sentiment is a Sizzix embossing folder. I also used some glitter gel pens to add some sparkle, although the picture doesn’t really do it justice!
Challenge #8 Color Combo (Cream, Brown, Olive and Pumpkin)
For the last challenge, I needed more inspiration, so I used the sketch in the current Paper Crafts Magazine. I used Unity/JillyBean Soup “Apple Cheddar Soup” set and also the matching paper from JillyBean Soup.
